In this paper the stability theory of impulsive parametric excitation developed in [1] is first applied to three mechanical systems. Explicit and exact stability conditions are easily found and some typical stability charts are presented. Also presented in the paper is the use of this theory and a parallel theory involving step functions as approximate methods for treating periodic parametric excitations of more general nature. Exploratory studies along this line have led us to believe that these approximate methods have promise to be very powerful and practical tools for dealing with the stability of general high-order periodic systems.
